Peru: Potato farmers fight Andean weevil

The Andean potato weevil is one of the most damaging pests affecting potato crops, especially in the highland region of the country. Therefore, and after 17 years of research, the National Institute of Agrarian Innovation (INIA) of the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MINAGRI) has developed a new technology to combat the spread of this pest, thus increasing the crop’s productivity, profitability and competitiveness.
